Does anyone have any advice on blanket advertising? I have been doing mailbox drops with a little flier and have had little success. I have had luck with the yellow book but I get calls that are too spaced out. What I am considering is using 8 1/2" x 11" envlopes that include;\ A cover letter, My card, two copies of a proposed contract and a return envlope. (One copy is for their records) If I hit larger neighborhoods in the 1/4 acre size is it economical to quote everyone the same price for service? I would think that you will be a little high on some and a little low on others but with the price of gas I just can't afford to drive out to 20 or 30 lawns to quote a price. I have heard that I should see a 1-2% return. Can anyone confirm or dispute this? Any other advice is appreciated.
